Understand What Your Dog is Telling You

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Man is not ape. Dog is not wolf.

From startling facts about its origins, to the fundamental reasons behind dog and man’s unbreakable attachment, Clever Dog: Understand What Your Dog is Telling You explores the myths that so many pet owners have been led to believe – and forms conclusions as to how our future relationship with the dog needs to change in order to survive, and thrive.

With her unique understanding of the secret language of dogs and her belief that all dogs are ‘clever dogs’, Sarah uses amusing anecdote and useful case histories to discover the mysteries of dog behaviour and show us a way of communicating with the four-legged friend who shares our hearts and homes.

Dog lovers can look at their best friends in a new light and create the perfect bond. As a world-leading expert in canine psychology, and often acknowledged as the ‘trainer’s trainer’, Sarah Whitehead shares her unique understanding of dogs in Clever Dog. With sections on Life, Love, Health and Happiness, this is a book about how we can become a harmonious team with our best friend. Here at last are the secrets your dog wants you to know.

With fascinating case studies and expert practical advice, Clever Dog is much more than a guidebook – it is the book your dog would want you to buy.

‘A clear, humane explanation of what really makes dogs tick, and how their natural affection for people is the only sensible basis on which to build the bond between dog and owner. Packed with useful tips and anecdotes that will engage anyone who loves dogs.’
Dr John Bradshaw, author of In Defence of Dogs

‘Insightful, captivating and written with terrific verve and wit: this is the one myth-busting book that your dog is dying for you to read. Sarah’s wonderful observations on how to be a stellar doggy companion will also help you with all your relationships – in the canine world and beyond.’
Dr Ian Dunbar, veterinarian, animal behaviourist and dog trainer

I recommend Clever Dog to any owner who wants to know what's going on in their pet's mind. All the secrets are here and it changes the way you look at your dog's behaviour. Sue Johnston, OBE
